When I was little, I think I got the hand-me-down cabbage patch dolls from my older brother and sister. But guess what? I have one of my very own now!
They're practically twins
Hey, look Shel, she isn't crying! HAHAHA
What's this you ask? Well it's my cucumber. I grew it from a seed! It's my only one, but I sure was proud of it! LOL
Anyone know what this animal is?
Shel, this one is for you, tears and all!
And a smile!
and a HOOOO
So as for me and my world- I'm describing it as running around with my head cut off. I wake up at 5am to leave the house by 7am. I pick up Ellie by 3:30, feed her, get her down for a nap, fix dinner, feed her, bathe me, bathe baby, feed her, go to sleep by 9 or 10pm, and do it all over again. Like I said; running around with my head cut off, and I am absolutely exhausted.
We had meetings 2 of the 4 days this week that left me with very little prep time, so I have been pulling stuff together last minute, which I hate- especially at the beginning of the year. Thankfully I made it, and it was a good week. I like how I have learned to be extremely strict for the first little while and won't put up with any guff from the kids so that later I can be a lot more lenient.
Hopefully once I get things in order in the class, and with prep work, I can calm down a bit, but it's definitely going to be a few weeks. If I had known I was doing 2nd grade even a week or two longer than I had, it would be a completely different story.
As for milestones that the wee one has mastered, she has figured out where her eyes are today and has been rubbing them when the sun gets in her eyes, or when she's tired. It is absolutely adorable! She can hold her head up pretty high while on her tummy but hasn't figured out how to roll herself over since all she does is scream like a raptor. Oh well, someday!
Drew's grandpa passed away this week. He lived down in Albany (OR), so we have to head down there tomorrow morning for the services. It's going to be a loooonnnngggg day. Thank goodness for Stake Conference on Sunday!
